I love photography, ever since I was working at wolf camera in 2001. I love nature also, so most of my work on here is a combination of these two passions. Other random hobbies are the violin, and home brewing. I'm a certified arborist and also do prescribed burning and natural area designs. I just started a landscaping company last summer, and work out of northern IL. I have a MS in Biology, and a BS in Environmental Science.

Current Residence: Round Lake, IL
Favourite photographer: Ansel Adams
Operating System: biological in nature
Shell of choice: Great A'Tuin
Favourite cartoon character: Captain Planet
Personal Quote: The Power is Yours!
Quick life update, I'm in grad school getting a masters in biology.  I'm contemplating a PhD in something ecology related, but will probably take a semester to decide, as I haven't applied yet and it is too late to get in right away.  I will be done with my Master's in December this year.  I'm still a certified arborist, and do prescribed burning, and I opened a landscaping company with my husband over the summer.  We have a few clients, one of them is a university which I installed a butterfly garden at.  All in all, life is busy.  I'm hoping to get in with the DNR some day, but if that doesn't happen, I will find other ways to help the environment.  Can't wait for the Captain Planet movie to come out!!!
